How to watch Rome in Australia

Before Game of Thrones, the cloak-and-dagger politics and epic-battle landscape was very different, with only small skirmishes into the genre. But that all changed when Rome rode onto the scene, giving viewers a delicious insight into the world of backstabbing politics, bloodthirsty campaigns and slightly-exaggerated history lessons when the Roman Empire was at its peak. But while the series, like the Roman Empire itself, has ended long ago, where exactly can you find it if you’re looking to go back in time? Find out how to watch Rome in this Canstar Blue guide.

What is Rome about?

Rome is set in the 1st Century BC, a time where Ancient Rome transitions from Republic to Empire, and the aftermath that follows. Following two Roman soldiers – Lucius and Titus – who happen to be in and around the many important events of the time, the show also explores the dangerous nature of Roman politics, as well as the cutthroat high-society, who play their own game to stay in power. While originally slated for five seasons, Rome was only produced for two, but still packs enough intrigue and action to keep history fans and TV enthusiasts entertained.
